Popular in Europe and growing in popularity in the UK, this fast drying dishcloth is a great replacement for plastic-filled products like smelly sponges and microfibre cloths which end up in landfill. Being super absorbent it also replaces paper towels and can provide a vegan alternative for chamois-leather for getting that shine on your car and glass surfaces. It's fast drying (so odour resistant), plastic-free, durable, and made in the UK. We hope this blue bird print design will put a smile on your face too.
Popular in Europe, a Swedish dishcloth is a versatile highly absorbent cloth made from plant-based cellulose blended with some cotton. It’s a great replacement for a general purpose kitchen cloth, a washing up sponge, paper kitchen towel, and streak-free wipes (such as chamois leather) but with more pros and less cons – further details below!
This natural material blend dries a lot faster than sponges and J cloths, reducing the bacteria build up that causes those smells and bad hygiene. Naturally odour-resistant but easy to wash if it does start to smell.
Microfibre cloths are essentially made from plastic, so not only is their production bad for the environment, but they also contribute to plastic pollution and end up in landfill and are not biodegradable. Swedish dishcloths on the other hand will give the same great results as microfibre cloths, but are plastic-free, all natural and when they start to break down you can put them in the compost.
Yes! Much better than a cheap plasticky sponge! However it doesn’t have a scarifying surface so a coir/coconut fibre pad or brush, or a natural fibre brush would still be useful for those tougher jobs. This natural dishcloth is also great for spills and worktops, as it’s highly absorbent, fast drying and machine washable.
Months! This plastic-free dishcloth will last longer than you expect. Depending on your usage of it you could be using the same cloth daily for anything between 2 and 12 months. You can wash it up to around 50 times before it will start to breakdown. Then you can put it in your compost or some people have even used them as an anti-weed mat in the garden!
